Bolton chooses G2 Speech for NHS digital dictation requirements
G2 Speech, the leading provider of speech recognition and digital dictation solutions for the medical market has been appointed to provide the digital dictation system for both NHS Bolton and the Royal Bolton NHS Foundation Trust.
The move to digital dictation for over 400 users is in response to the ever increasing demand for better NHS patient care and faster document turnaround times which render the existing analogue ways of working out dated and inefficient.
Ann Schenk Director of Strategy and Improvement Royal Bolton NHS Foundation Trust said:
“The procurement of a digital dictation platform from G2 Speech will allow full visibility and management of dictation and transcription from one common user interface. We have high priority placed on the timely production and dispatch of clinical correspondence and will be looking to move towards achieving a 24 hour turnaround of clinical correspondence.
The use of digital dictation and speech recognition will help to remove many of the administrative delays that occur between dictation and typing of the notes, which will enable and support the Trust to change working practices to improve efficiency and communication.”
The MediSpeech digital dictation solution from G2 Speech will enable clinicians to dictate their notes and have them immediately sent along with patient, hospital and GP data automatically to secretaries for completion. At any stage the clinician can electronically review and approve their notes which normally only takes moments due to the impressive accuracy rates (up to 98%) achieved with the G2 Speech software.
Henry Gallagher, Managing Director, G2 Speech said:
“We are delighted that the Royal Bolton NHS Foundation Trust has chosen G2 Speech to deliver our MediSpeech digital dictation solution. G2 Speech are experts in providing trust wide solutions that include digital dictation, speech recognition and workflow management – thanks to our industry leading single platform.
